Hey, gang. If you listen to our podcast, you know that Dr. Mike and I will be heading to Atlantic City over Veterans Day weekend (Nov. 8 - 11, 2013). It's our first ever trip to AC, so we're really looking forward to it.

Coincidentally, board member Jimmer will also be there that weekend, and he started a thread on which many good suggestions for first-timers have been posted. Thanks to all who chimed in.

We'd love to meet up with any WOVers who might be in the area. Feel free to post here or PM me. Also, we'll be tweeting extensively while we're there, so if you're not sure what your plans might be, you can follow us @YouCanBetonThat.

AC, baby!

Do you have a website other than twitter, a blog page or something? I'd like to follow, but I don't use that application.

Cool, thanks! I like that it's for recreational gamblers. Enjoy AC! The best casinos are pretty good (Borgata, Harrah's Revel), the worst are pretty bad (Claridge, Resorts). Eat at Harrah's or Borgata. Not that the food is bad at Revel, but the service is sloppy. Not unfriendly, but untrained, badly managed.

We aren't that far, but after the week in Las Vegas our bank accounts need to rest. I do have a $300 slot ticket for Revel that I need to go back and cash, though...

I'll be there Thursday-Friday this week, pretty good deal through the Atlantic Club. 9/6 JoB with .2% cash back and 1.2% comp dollars... plus room. They have 3x comps on Thursdays, otherwise I'd be there over the weekend. I've spend my past few trips there at Trump Plaza, but that place has gotten really depressing. Like nothing is open anymore and their VP is absolute, unadulterated, shit.

Although I live in NJ, and would love to take you for that $100 free bet, I've had my ass handed to me on my last couple casino trips, and have no bankroll.

But here's some tourist advice. A few years ago I created a Google AC tourist map. I linked it and it generated a discussion in this thread:
http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/off-topic/other-casinos/5746-atlantic-city-casinos-and-points-of-interest-map/

Also, as craps players who are inclined to make toke bets, here's an interesting tidbit: tokes placed on the inside numbers are rounded UP! Discussed here:
http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/tables/9306-best-dealer-toke-craps-place-1-on-5-6-8-and-9-pays-2-and-piggyback-it/

Good luck and have fun!
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

You'll be there with the big NJEA convention. Be sure to say high to all the teachers.
By the way, CZR is dumping the Claridge (even with the partial renovation) on some hotel company from Clearwater, FL.

AC, baby!



Mark DeVol and Dr. Mike,

An AC meetup with my favorite gambling podcast hosts? I'm in!

I've gotten so many hours of enjoyment out of listening to your podcasts (I've listened to all 31 podcasts at least twice, mostly on my drive down to AC fron NYC), so I figure this is a good time to give back.

---

I would like to invite you guys to play Pai Gow Tiles (if you haven't played the game before) at Caesars AC (or any casino of your choosing; all Caesars properties have the game). Your first green chip bet and your first round of banking is on me (I have a great story of how banking one particular hand at Foxwoods and double copying the dealer won me $5,000).

But what I really want to do is try to break that kid's roll in Las Vegas and roll nine or more 4's. Let's press that 4 up to table max!

Plus we can get a pink chip $7.50/$15 10-Game going with HORSE, Badugi, 2-7 Triple Draw, 5 Card Draw Hi-Lo, Pineapple, whatever home games you play!

---

FYI, here are some promotions around town.

All four AC Caesars properties have a 10X reward credit multiplier on Thursdays. So if you earn 10,000 reward credits on Thursday night (through 6AM Friday) you get credited with 100,000; have you guys considered arriving 11/7?

Borgata will upgrade both of you (show your Seven Stars and Diamond cards) to Black Label (2nd highest tier player's card) and will give you $200 free slot play and VIP Lounge access (better than any CET Diamond Club in the country)

(link) http://www.theborgata.com/casino/my-borgata-rewards/black-label-trade-up

Tropicana is offering a 150% loss rebate on slot machines, up to $1,000 for new player's card sign ups or inactive players.

Revel, Trump Taj Mahal/Plaza, Atlantic Club and Golden Nugget offer nominal free slot play amounts for signing up for a player's card. Worth picking up if you are planning to visit all the casinos.

---

I was just in Harrah's/Harveys Lake Tahoe for 5 days, so we should have a few stories to share. I hit a 5 point (8 total points) fire bet at Harveys, but 3/4/5 odds, meh, could've offered 5X or 10X.

See you guys in AC!
